From the Design Desk: Promos in the Mail
As a follow up to our neat mail post from two weeks ago, not all of those cool envelopes contain invoices. We also get a lot of promotional material that’s as diverse as the books we publish. For example, below (from left to right): letterpress “matchsticks” from Swink, a wooden postcard from Deep Craft, a multimedia card from Laura Tarrish, and a tiny letter from Sally Faulkner.
Illustrator Michael Slack sent us as “pribery” kit filled with samples of his work in various formats.
Japanese illustrator Sayaka Enomoto sent us the little origami packet below. The bow is a hand-written note and the envelope a magazine tear-out. Inside she included photo prints of her work. The whole thing is a tad mysterious since we couldn’t find samples of her online. But we’re definitely charmed.
Next week we’ll show you some of the neat art prints and cash money we also get in the mail. Just kidding! Getting to work with talented and nice people is rewarding enough.
